Meet the Bogdons

 
Trisha and Brian Bogdon were on top of the world when they found out that they were expecting twins! As first time parents, they were both scared and excited at the thought of welcoming two babies into the world. At a routine 18 week ultrasound, the Bogdons discovered that their son had a condition called Trisomy 18. (An extra 18th chromosome) Their daughter was healthy, so they continued their pregnancy as expected, waiting to see what the future held. At 29 weeks, 11 weeks too soon, Trisha went into labored and delivered her twins. Skylin was rushed to the NICU and Atlas spent 48 minutes, filled with love, in his parent's arms. After 68 days, Skylin was able to come home. Skylin has continued to grow and you would never know that she spent the beginning of her life fighting for each breath. She is surrounded by pictures and stories of her angel brother, Atlas. Almost to the day of her and Atlas' third birthday, she welcomed her sister Aspen into the family... a FULL TERM baby!
